Kinderling Kids Radio teams up with Alexa

Kinderling Kids Radio today launched two new skills for Amazon Alexa in Australia & New Zealand, ‘Bedtime Explorers’ – a guided meditation and mindfulness series for kids and ‘Kinderling Kids News’ with Groovy Ruby.

Children and families will be able to instantly connect with two of Kinderling’s most loved shows. 
Managing Director of The Parent Brand, Lorna Clarkson, said Kinderling is thrilled to be at the forefront of this new and innovative approach aimed at connecting families with useful and interesting content.
“Alexa presents an enormous opportunity for safe, screen-free entertainment that the whole family can enjoy together. And as a technology driven by an informal and intuitive language – it is perfect as a child-led experience. In the same way that Kinderling Kids Radio is tailored to a family’s routine, these two new Alexa Skills are geared around a typical family day – providing up-beat entertainment in the morning with a song and a joke in our daily flash briefing; and then offering a choice of mindfulness exercises to help calm down the energy before bedtime.”

More programming and functionality is in the pipeline.
